Nuffield Scholarship Program Funds World Travel for Farmers
Brock Taylor, a long-time independent agronomist in Clovis was just named to the Nuffield USA Board of Directors.
Taylor…”For me, it's, it's really leadership. Going back to their own community with all this experience and traveling and meeting other people and dealing with people while you travel and bringing that back to their own community. So that's, that's a really good thing. The commodity group funds it and sponsors it, but then they're coming back to their own community in a leadership role for the community, which I really like.”
Taylor first became involved with Nuffield by planning visits to California for foreign scholars. He says most participants are farmers or ranchers in their 30s or 40s, and have someone who is able to takeover their management responsibilities while they travel.
Scholars choose their individual travel areas based on their research topic. They then bring that knowledge back to their local communities.
Nuffield is accepting applications and will be conducting interviews in the spring. Learn more and apply at www.NuffieldInternational.org.
